ULTRA RED for Energy Organizations

The energy sector is a target for malicious actors ranging from nation states to criminals and hacktivists. Modernizing initiatives involving the connection of traditional technologies to modern digital systems enables operational efficiencies and improved customer service, but also increases the external attack surface and the risk of cyber-attack. Successful attacks can expose sensitive customer and operational data and result in service disruption and knock-on effects across the energy supply chain. Threat and exposure management plays an important role in the proactive cyber-defence of the energy eco-system.  

Top attack surface challenges for Energy organizations include:

  • Continuous external asset and service discovery and curation.
  • Supply chain visibility
  • Timely discovery, validation, and remediation of vectors
  • Identification of deprecated components, services and exposed legacy technology
  • Integration with other services
  • Detection of sensitive data such as login credentials and PII exposure
  • Identification of relevant dark web activity

ULTRA RED provides Energy organizations with full visibility of their Internet exposed assets and services organized to support both cyber teams and cyber-risk functions. ULTRA RED's automatic vector detection and deep validation greatly improves the productivity of cyber teams compared to other solutions by saving untold hours in investigating false positives. Full documentation and remediation guidance allows close collaboration between security and IT operations to dramatically cut mean-time-to-remediation. ULTRA RED’s industry leading repository of DarkNet and open-source intelligence detects PII and sensitive information exposures and highlights relevant chatter. Full support of Gartner's Continuous Threat and Exposure Management framework delivers a standard process to systematically improve staff productivity and reduce attack surface risk while containing costs.
